The 27-year-old forward’s deal with the Spanish champions runs out in 2015 but speculation this season has linked him with a sensational return to Premier League club Manchester United.
However, speaking to FIFA.com, the Portuguese international made it clear he wants to remain with Madrid until his contract expires.
“I want to see out my contract at Real: I’m very clear about that.
“I want to see out my contract at Real: I’m very clear about that. After that, well, I don’t know what’ll happen in the future.
“After that, well, I don’t know what’ll happen in the future.”
Ronaldo then touched in Madrid’s season so far and shifted focus from La Liga onto the Champions League.
“Every Madridista wants that 10th European Cup – we’re more than aware of that,” Ronaldo said. “Last season we fell just short, which was very frustrating.
“Fortunately we’ve got the opportunity to set the record straight this year, though the fact we face Manchester United next makes it more difficult.
“It’s not going to be easy and I reckon the odds are about 50-50, but I’m still very confident. No team’s unbeatable, but when we’re at our best we’re a really good side.
“Manchester United have started the English championship race very well and are a long way ahead of the rest, but still, if we play the way we’re capable of, we can beat them.
“To do that we need to pull together and play as a team, like we’ve done in so many matches before.”
